KINS - SINGLE REVIEW

Kins - Aimless 
Kins - Aimless

When I was really drunk once I made myself a late night snack of a chunky peanut butter and Bovril sandwich. It shouldn't have worked but it really did and to this day, every now and again, I will revisit that snack with deep affection. Kins have a similar impact on me in that their Alt-J vocals combined with Dutch Uncles disregard for time signatures and a love of woozy melodies shouldn't really provide a compelling listening experience but, somehow, it works. I suspect the loose, groove laden drums and explorative guitar noodling has something to do with it but, hey, let's not over analyse. All you need to know is that 'Aimless' - perfect title by the way - has a gentle enough style to make it appealing to the masses coupled with enough artistic ingenuity to appeal to the musical snobs out there. Surely it's a win-win scenario?
